Caroline, a little guy is not going to see the mismatched lines. He (or she!) will love it no matter how the lines are. The piece of equipment is perfect. The cement bags are perfect. The go sign is perfect. Those are the main focus. Keep going, its going to turn out Great! You are doing a fabulous job. Hugs and Flowers for all
thanks 4 your kind words hugs
Sorry to hear you are having such a time for this design Caroline. know how frustrating that can be, especially when it is such a large project as this one. I considered making it myself but I already missed the first couple weeks. Guess I'm glad I passed on this one. I wish you the best.Hugs, Susan
you can still buy them but+++++talked to a few girls and it is not just me lol
Understand your frustration, however know you will be able to get it done.
Know there have been suggestion to pick out a block. How about only picking out the dark line on the middle block and use zigzag stitch to place in correct place instead of doing the whole block over. Will not pray for patience for you just pray for strength.
Amen do it hugs
I agree with the others, it doesn't have to be perfect to make some little boy happy and I have faith that you have the talent to overcome some of these imperfections.
yep easy peasy throw it in the dump lol but i won't+++++
I see what you mean, but please do not give up. I am sure some little boy would love it and not see the imperfections. No one is perfect, certainly not me. Keep going. Hugs
Thanks Shirley i think i will but need a break++++
Yes take a break, have a Kit Kat. Sure may help. I would help you finish it if I lived over there near you.
Only place I see is that arrow--does it look like that on the site that sold the design? I will have to go see it if I can. Like one of the ladies said--maybe an inspiration will com to cover the spoilage [crooked arrow] like find a hard hat, construction one or is you have the software where you can trim some 'rocks' and hoop this block again to embroider extra rock to hide the arrow.. Something will come to you--you are an idea person. The designs sewn itself are pretty amazing and no puckers at all. Great looking-don't stop!
I am starting again soon just need a break from the design thanks hugs
I feel you should just continue on and do your best, any child would be thrilled with it!!!
I willl;;;;'''Just need to change a few things lol
Awesome and lots of work put into it!!!Hold on!!Gorgeous!!
Thanks Sonja hugs4u2
I agree Carolyn. There are a lot of problems with this design, one of which is that the stitching is too dense where some of the blocks need to join. You know how many times I have restitched mine. But as I have told you we are our own worst critics. Hang in there. If there is anyone thinking of doing this quilt you might want to reconsider, but I am too far into it to give up now.
I hear ya!!!!!thanks:):)
That is marvelous. Look at the lines of the machine and the falling rock.
The arrow may need adjustment or some addition when the quilt is done.
"anyone loose a hat to cover the jog?" If it will not line up, look at the finished design for inspiration for a 'hider' piece. A button that looks like a hat. Something will occur to you. THIS is a very hard piece and your too good to let a little tweak stop you.
Thanks for your kind words hugs
Don't give up on it.....I think it is fabulous...looking forward to the rest!
You are doing a wonderful job.......Keep working on it!
I can't wait to see it finished!
thanks for looking hugs
Trug on! I can see your outer edges are even, so I don't know how you could bring it up at #12 for the arrow line to align. It would be disappointing after all your work. Maybe rip or un-pick just that block and re-sew (I know no one likes to do that but sometimes it's necessary) being careful when you sew the blocks together, to align the arrow line.
I know it really will be nice when completed and you'll enjoy it then too. You go girl!
Ah thanks Toogie girl++++
Keep going my friend! There is really only one block that is really out of alignment...the more blocks you get done, the less it will be noticed...perhaps you can unpick that block and "fudge" it into alignment a bit better...don't get discouraged...the more you do, the better you will get.
You think sew Kim ???Thanks+++
Carolyn I think it looks great, a mammoth task for a quilt your not happy with how the designs stitch. Why not send Stitch Delight an email, telling them what is happening may be they have some suggestions to help you. Do you have to have the large numbers on it? Perhaps you could substitute one of the plain ones like the start or 6 / 7 . When I looked at the site and the other blocks, there is a lot that will join designs together, and a lot of blanks It will look stunning when finished if that is what you decide to do. Good luck with such a big project
Thanks Sandra i was wondering what the next piece will do match or what???/hugs
Keep on with it! Only way you're going to conquer it and you will end up with an other project well done!
I think you should carry on it looks great! Get yourself a
Plastic box and put all your fabric in there while you are constructing your quilt take out what you will be working with for the day. Happy stitching.
Thanks for looking hugs
